    Health & Safety: I think our safety is enough for this area because we don't live in a bad area so we don't need as much security as other schools might need. When there is any possible threats to our security they deal with it as quietly and quickly as they can.

    Extracurriculars: This is one thing that this school has a lot of. There many different clubs and organizations at this school which gives opportunities for people of different interests. There are both large clubs like NHS and smaller clubs like Interact, I am personally involved in about 5 clubs.

    Overall Experience: I think this school is really competitive and there is a lot of pressure to take AP and AICE classes, so I probably wouldn't choose this school again because it puts more pressure than necessary on the students.

    Teachers: I think there are both good & ok teachers at this school. There are those that put good effort into their class and some that don't care as much about the students.
